We had a post our on Facebook today asking about chipping on the front bumper.. I haven't noticed anything crazy but the member said Ram wouldn't warranty it because it was a "wear and tear" item.

Anyone else having paint chipping issues?

You mean flaking? I can't see paint chipping from impacts being anything but a "wear and tear" issue. Just my opinion.

Yea, I guess it would really depend on how bad it is. The paint should hold up "well" for the most part in my opinion.

I know I have rock chips in my bumper Paint but I haven't asked a dealer about it at all I guess

Just assumed it was one of those things that happens. Not so much warranty. Just wear and tear

3M (and other companies I'm sure) make clear paint protection films that go over the factory paint. Something to look into for sure.

Yeah the 3m was available when I got it and provided warranty. Just had to be resprayed every 3 years. I opted against it. Wish I had gotten my grill and bumper done
